Manipur State Museum

Museum in Imphal

This two-storey government-run museum, off Kangla Rd, has a curious collection of tribal costumes, royal clothing, historical polo equipment and stuffed carnivores. Outside, by the lawns, you’ll find an ornate and spectacular 78ft royal boat. Fronting the museum is the Polo Ground, where polo is said to have been invented. You'll have to leave your phone, camera and other gadgets at a counter by the main entrance.
